Details

The java applet in the url above does not seem to run.
Instead of displaying the menus, etc, it just display something like:

   Java Applet ...
   Sending events to applet. LOAD
   Sending events to applet. INIT

and stops...
--> OJI for further triage

I see this on trunk build 2000-11-11-03 using the java plugin that shipped with
Netscape 6.0 release (version 1.3.0_01).

Confirming.  Possibly related to bug 58074 (some similarities in the error
messages).

From the Java console:

java.lang.ClassFormatError: WebClient (Local variable name has bad constant pool
index)

At the moment, Java is not known to work on the trunk, only the RTM branch,  
The CVS tag for this is Netscape_20000922_BRANCH.

We'll check into this when we get Java working on the trunk.

Ed, is there a specific bug for this java not working on the trunk problem ? 
Today, I cannot even install the java plugin on the linux trunk 1130. Thanks!
Shrirang, there is not yet a bug for: java not working in the trunk.

I'll let you know when there is.
I had a similar -- perhaps identical -- problem with a public library catalog
until recently, but it works fine now on release 0.7.  A quick glance at the
initial screens for the Toronto Public Library (whose URL is given in this bug
report) and the catalog I was using (King County, http://webpac.kcls.org/) shows
that they look similar, and are probably the same software.
Just another link where this bug still is pressent in 0.7

Joe, can you please investigate this?

I tried to bring up the page (http://tplwpac.tpl.toronto.on.ca) with Netscape
4.X on Linux and on Solaris, and could not bring it up either (got error: "Could
not connect to server").
Reporter: It looks like the page has something that does not work with Netscape
browser (either 4.x or 6, either Solaris or Linux). It does not seem to be a
Mozilla specific problem.

By the way, I just tested Mozilla0.7 and Mozilla from RTM branch, they both
seemed working OK (with or without Java plugins). One thing to remember is that
on Linux, a debug-enabled mozilla would not work with a debug-disabled Java
plugin. Make sure they are compitable.

Did you check http://www.fb-webbank.dk, ? that page works perfectly
with netscape 4.7x / linux.
"www.fb-webbank.dk" seems to be a different problem, please open a new bug.
